vivy - I appreciate what you're trying to say, but I think you need to consider that software is not just about the code and how it functions on your machine. Support and the licence are vital to the overall utility of the software. One of my favourite DC quotes comes from Scott, who is not as active here as he once was, when he said that shitty software with a great licence is still shitty software. We can extrapolate from this and state also that a good piece of software with a shitty licence is diminished because of its licence. I'd add that support is the third component in this...
I shouldnt use this software because you didnt get any support? Do you think i wouldnt get any response in Future.
Er, um, yes! Check out this link
, which I've already pointed you to, and you'll see that at least one other person gave up on getting support.
I am a new user but nobody told me that this software is not good because it is unstable etc..
Go back and re-read the thread and you'll see that a number of problems have been reported with it here. I reported one relating to explorer.exe ramping up resource use. I note in the original post and a followup that I cannot be absolutely sure that this was caused by TeraCopy but do note that the behaviour disappeared immediately following its removal.
If a coder doesnt want to give support why he should list all instant messenger addresses?
I think that that is precisely what Nighted is wondering as well... He, and others, have tried to contact the developer using these addresses and have not received any form of reply whatsoever.
I don't have an axe to grind with Codesector and have not had the negative experiences with them that others have had. However, when I consider purchasing a piece of shareware, these are exactly the kinds of user experiences that I take into account when making a decision. If I can't rely on the developer to stand by and support the app after I've paid for it, I'm not going to making a purchase. There's no reason not to apply the same due diligence to freeware and open source applications (and in fact there is EVERY reason to apply the same due diliegence to ANYTHING that you are considering running on your computer).
